What makes Vendor Marketing unique?
We have an in-depth knowledge of the best real estate agents in your local area, based on years of relationship building and first-hand property marketing experience.
Which areas of Melbourne do you cover?
We specialise in the municipalities of Port Phillip, Stonnington, Boroondara, Bayside, Glen Eira, City of Yarra & City of Melbourne – however we assist vendors right across Melbourne.
Who should use Vendor Marketing?
Anyone who wants to save time and money, achieve the maximum sale price for their property, and be supported throughout the entire sale process by a qualified, independent advisor.
Do you advise the best method of sale, ie. auction, private sale, tender?
Yes, but you get the final say. Most inner-city Melbourne real estate agents prefer auction but each property is different, so we discuss and strategise this with the shortlisted agents.
Whose board is displayed on the property?
The selected real estate agent has their name on the board and on all advertising.
Can you save me money on advertising?
Yes! Our many years’ experience in real estate media means all our vendors benefit from a comprehensive, cost effective property campaign whilst saving between 25-50% of typical agent-driven campaign costs. You’ll get coverage across all traditional real estate advertising mediums plus a complete social marketing campaign.
Is Vendor Marketing a Licensed Estate Agent?
Yes, definitely! Although only one licensed real estate agent is required we work alongside your chosen selling agent whilst managing the process, to ensure your interests are always protected.
What makes Vendor Marketing different from a Real Estate Estate Agent?
We act as strategic vendor advisors. This means we’re independent property and real estate marketing experts who also happen to know who the best real estate agents are in Melbourne.
Do you offer Buyers Advocacy services?
No, Vendor Marketing never represent buyers – ONLY home sellers. Those individuals who offer both vendor and buyer advocacy services do it only to increase revenue. This can create an unethical conflict of interest where one person advises both parties in the same transaction.
Will all Real Estate Agents work with Vendor Marketing?
Yes! We offer a distinct advantage over most vendor advocates, as we only charge the real estate agent an industry standard 20-25% referral or introduction fee. Many other vendors’ advocates charge the agent between 40-50% of their commission, so only desperate real estate agents are inclined to take on the business. And a desperate agent won’t be focused on getting you the best result. Vendor Marketing also ensures you pay less commission overall.
My experience with Vendor Marketing
“I hired Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing, to be my vendor advocate, as I didn’t have any experience in selling a house. I am very glad that I did, he made the whole process worry free. He helped me to get the right selling agent and ultimately a very good price for my house. I found Craig to be easy to talk to, honest and reliable, he was always available if I had a problem. I would be very happy to recommend Craig from Vendor Marketing Vendor Advocates to anyone.”
The expertise is invaluable
“The expertise, experience and advice provided by Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing was exceptional. As exector of my late parent’s estate there were some complex legal and family dispute issues which involved a legal deed which needed to carefully adhered to. Craig worked skillfully with solicitors, conveyancers, real estate agents and all parties to ensure the process and terms of the deed were adhered to and achieved. He is a highly skilled and professional advocate. He is also a gentlemen and a pleasure to deal with. I could not recommed Craig and Vendor Marketing more highly. He ensured my journey through the selling process was that much easier. I will definetely use Craig again and recommend him and Vendor Marketing to all my friends and family. Thanks Craig, you really are a star.”
We engaged Craig on a friends
“We engaged Craig on a friends recommendation. The daunting task ahead in selling our home required the skills that Craig was able to offer us with his experience in real estate.

After many months on the market
“After many months on the market, once Craig came in and added his expertise, found the right agent and his excellent marketing/real estate knowledge secured a sale within a few weeks. We cannot thank Craig enough for taking all the hassle and worry out of our sale – we never felt that we were alone and he was always approachable and handled matters with the utmost professionalism We would highly recommend Craig and Vendor Marketing if you are thinking of selling your property.”
“We have had a stress free experience in selling our holiday house, due from the very first contact with Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing to the outstanding sale result attributed to our advocates skill in finding the best agent in the area to sell the property and negotiating with them on our behalf.
